Señorita won’t you dance with me tonight?
i got tired of sitting tight
there’s a twinkle in your eye i can’t deny
it’s nice to meet you, do you always steal the room?
she’s said, “honey, don't assume
you’re cute and all but i’m a married woman soon."
i walked into the bar, her picture on the wall
relatives and all, her daddy owned the place
when he died he gave the business to his son
but her brother likes his fun, another pretty face
i grabbed a beer and watched the patrons filling up their tanks
working through the ranks to get a word with her
she never wears a ring when she is on the clock
the attention never stops and tips are best for lonely girls
i’ve been with men like you
who don’t know what they want to do
they don’t know where they’re going and forget where they have been
i’ve wasted so much time, i told myself i never would again
she cashed me out and i wrote down my number on the check
it said "with all due respect i’d love the chance to prove you wrong."
